Do you have a young Lorenzo, Spies or Crutchlow in your midst? Maybe you’ve just got a young motorcycle enthusiast? Whichever it is, Yamaha is encouraging youngsters to get on two wheels with ‘My First Yamaha’.

In addition to the range of 50th Anniversary celebration apparel and novelties already available, has announced a new 50th Anniversary Yamaha Balance Bike.

For the big people Yamaha have the Yamaha WGP 50th Anniversary motorcycle and scooter models, but for the little ones among us, this cool Yamaha M1 WGP 50th Anniversary wooden balance bike is the perfect alternative.

Featuring semi-slick tyres, underseat exhaust pipes, sculpted rear swingarm and full replica WGP 50th Anniversary paint scheme, kids can learn how to balance and steer in a safe, quick, fun way and look cool at the same time.

Designed for children aged from 2 to 6 years old, the sustainably sourced natural birch plywood construction is finished in child-safe paint and is CE-approved.

Dimensions: Handlebar height – 440mm, Seat height – 330 to 350mm, Wheelbase – 615mm
